The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

This Confuses the UN

"This" being the ovens of Dachau.

Carl in Jerusalem points us to a fascinating look at the United Nations' efforts to educate the Palestinian children on the Holocaust:

"The [UNRWA] Workers' Union emphasized its adamant opposition to teaching the Holocaust of the Jews within the educational curriculum of UNRWA schools, as part of the topic of human rights. The union said, 'We emphasize our adamant opposition to confusing the thinking of our students' by means of Holocaust studies in the human rights study curriculum, and emphasize study of the history of Palestine and the acts of massacre which have been carried out against Palestinians, the most recent of which was the war against Gaza.'

You see, despite the fact that I could have picked any number of absolutely horrible images to headline this story, all of which would highlight the astounding levels of suffering that the Jewish people have endured at the hands of German murderers, the fact that the Jews were persecuted is confusing to Palestinian children, who can't seem to understand that anyone other than themselves have ever suffered hardship in this life.

I'd say it's amazing, but it's not like the Palestinians don't have a long history of teaching their kids to hate or anything.

So long story short, how about we just DELETE THE UNITED NATIONS and get the world reconnected with reality again.
